Hi everyone! It's Dorymar, back to share my Summer Sn@p album with you. The Sunshine and Blue Skies Collection is so fun, the colors, all the palm trees, the sun, the phrases are amazing. These pages were especially fun for me to create because Summer is my favorite season. I’m from the Caribbean and the warm weather, beaches and sand are my life.
When I first saw the New Robins Eggs Sn@p Binder it goes perfectly with this collection. One of the things I love the most in creating a Sn@p Album it’s to decorate the cover. In this case I use the cute pool people from the Bits and Pieces and the colorful surf boards form the 4x6 card and put them together. Then I added the Summer Word from the Sticker Sheet and the results were fantastic.
Another thing that I like best about Sn@p binders is the natural color because I can paint it and combine it with any collection. In this case I painted all the edges of the binder and the dividers with white color that go perfectly with this collection.
The binders have a lot of space for photos and to document stories, but I always like to add custom pockets and flaps for photos. In the spread on the right side I create a flap with the 3x4 card and in the other side I put some pieces to gives a different touch. I love the tags, always in my projects you can find them in any space. In this case in the 6x8 layout, I used the 4x4 card to create a pocket with a tag. I add ribbons and elements of the collection to give a fun look.
Also, I love to create layouts inside the binder using the dividers of the binder as a base. This adds fun spaces for photos and other ways of working with the elements of the collection. I love how all the elements match together and how they look with all the layers.
I created a flap using the Navy/Emerald paper as a base to add space for picture and journaling, the fun 2x2 cards have many fun summer phrases. I decorated the belly band with a few die cuts from the bits and pieces.
I used the fun pieces of the collection to create a fun collage on the left side of the space for a picture, then added some word stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet to decorate it.
For the full page 6x8 layout I embellished with the chipboard stickers and some coordinating bits to keep that summer feel.
